Milestones For AAPG/HoD
an economic environment of declining, but still good oil prices,
the House met in New Orleans on 24 March 1985 under Chairman A.T.
(Toby) Carleton. Those were heady times with AAPG membership over
42,000. Martha Lou Broussard, Chair of the Constitution and Bylaws
Committee offered three significant resolutions:
make each current officer, each past-chairman of HoD and each
past-president of the Association more than three years out of
office a nonvoting Delegate (unless otherwise a voting Delegate
- PJFG). This resolution passed.
amend the Constitution and Bylaws in order to render them gender
neutral. This resolution passed.
- To require
200 instead of 50 members' signatures to originate amendments
to the Constitution and/or Bylaws. This resolution was defeated.
Item 1 and 2 above were subsequently adopted by HoD/AAPG. The minutes
of the House are sparse on item 3 and the only reference is "It
was the sentiment of the House that the amendment process should
not be made any harder." Readers are reminded that amendments are
also proposed by resolutions of 1) the Executive Committee, 2) the
House of Delegates and additionally, in the case of the Constitution,
by 3) a special constitutional committee appointed by the President.
